European Travels

2018 was once again a fantastic bespoke journey! We returned to handsome Amsterdam, affectionately referred to as the Venice of the North, where we stepped into the world of Vincent van Gogh's art and cruised on the 400-year-old historical canals.  As our six country adventure unfolded,  we winged on, hopscotching  down to Croatia's Dalmatian Coast; including stops in Montenegro and Slovenia while traveling overland along the Adriatic Sea. After, taking a short respite in Venice, Italy - where we admired the Venetian architecture, while strolling along the Grand Canal - once again. Sadly,  we said arrivederci to Venice all too soon - pushing-on, making our segue on to Bordeaux. Travel vicariously with us to places most only glimpse on postcards through our blog, Scribbles and Smiles. 

2017 was another great year of travel for the J. Christina team. We hopscotching through Amsterdam, Germany, France, Switzerland, and Luxembourg. After, taking respite along the Cote d'Azur to explore the medieval villages of Gorbio, Sainte-Agnès - both classified as  les Plus Beaux Villages de France. You can find all the details of this trip on the blog, images on Instagram and  posts on Facebook

In 2016 J. Christina completed  a month long journey through Spain,  Portugal, and the Douro Valley wine region, cruising on the Douro River with Uniworld European River Cruises.   After, continuing on to Bordeaux, France, cruising on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.  Where J. Christina enjoyed sampling, sipping and strolling the world-famous Bordeaux vineyards and wines. You will find all this and more on the blog, Instagram and Facebook.

Our travels in 2015 took us to The Imperial Capitals of Europe.   What an exciting year of travel!  Our journey and cruise with #Uniworld took us from Vienna, Austria to Bucharest, Romania with an extension onto Istanbul, Turkey.  We traveled through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, and  Turkey - with our finale in Paris, France.  Wow, what a trip!
